Tracking files and other browsers
Every page I try to use to contact Tor returns errors. I register for Trac and it refuses to let me login and claims the capcha isn't accepted (22 times). I have no idea what most of the technical terms you use are and that makes figuring anything out impossible. You REALLY need to make contact and support/bug reports a hell of a lot easier to file and find.
When I use Tor, then log out, I always use CCleaner to remove all traces. What I always find are files appearing in MS Edge and MS Internet Explorer and around 40 tracker files that weren't there when I cleaned it all prior to opening Tor. I assumed that Tor would block tracking files since those are just highways back to me and I most assuredly assumed that no information would be shared with Microsoft browsers. I've changed no settings in Tor after it was downloaded.
I found nothing under VERSION that's even close to what my browser returns which is 8.0.8. I love Tor and have financially supported it the last few years but my assumption about its safety has made me hesitant to use it. If tracking files are constantly placed on my system and files are being sent to Microsoft then the security that I expected doesn't exist.
